Sadly there currently is no fix for this problem. I've also had this same problem and contacted Sony about it.

You need to send it in to them to get it serviced. You can do this at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3

If your warrenty has expired it will cost around $180.

Although, if you had anyone other than a Sony representative replace your disc, they may refuse to service your console.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


If it doesn't spin, chances are, it's your laser. Once you replace that laser, I bet your system will recognize the disc and spin up.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

When i turned my Ps3 on this mornin i changed the disk and put anouther game in. its been doing the spinning line in a circle thing for the last 10mins. it was working fine last night. plz help!


Either bad laser or dirty laser. Take your console apart if you dont have a warranty break down the disc drive metal case and wipe your laser with a q tip and rubbing alchol not to wet though kinda wipe qtip on ur arm to get most of the alchol off the qtip so it wont pour into the laser when you wipe it off. hopefully that works if not its a bad laser.

Disc not reading


If you're getting a Disc Read Error (DRE), it could be one or both of these things.

Your laser lens is dirty or broken and needs to be cleaned or replaced, or your disc tray is faulty and needs to be serviced.

Try cleaning the lens and see if it will read. If you can hear the disc spin in the PS3, then your disc tray is fine.

Ps3 not reading discs!


If you keep on getting this problem you will need to send it in to get it fixed, or you can actually readjust the laser from home.
To do this you can use a good repair guide.

Ps3 not reading discs


Hello
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KEM-400AAA / KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400AAA. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.

2nd is something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.

and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!
